Taxes and Trust - The Achilles Heels of Obamacare and Obama, Part II
Big Government ^ | 10 Jul 2012 | Pat Caddell

Part Two -- The Strategy As we saw in Part One of this series, the Achilles Heels of Obamacare are taxes and trust. If the voters had known in 2010 what they know in 2012--that Obamacare is ObamaTax--the bill would not have passed. And Obama and the Democrats know that, too. That’s why they are still fighting over whether or not it’s a tax or a penalty; for the sake of their own survival, they need to keep their rhetorical fog machine fogging. In this effort, partisan Democrats enjoy the full support of the hard ideological left, and the left knows that if Obamacare is brought down, it is unlikely that replacement legislation of European-style scope would have a chance of passage. In other words, this is a last stand for the bureaucratic left--and last-standers have a way of fighting to the death. That’s why Republicans need to wield the cudgel wisely--but also strongly. There can be no quarter in this fight.

Yet Republicans Are Fumbling the Opportunity

Meanwhile, Republicans are wielding the cudgel, alright--but they are missing the target. Indeed, so far, they seem to be conking their own heads.

--snip--

It’s the ObamaTax. And now here’s a whole division of IRS agents....

This is the winning strategy for Republicans. This is the road not yet taken. This is the path that many Republicans leaders, with their blinders on, refuse to see. But it is the road that can lead them to a decisive victory in 2012.

If Republican leaders cannot and will not see the logic of this argument and take this case to the American people, then shame on them.

“Tax” is the Achilles Heel of Obamacare. “Trust” is the Achilles Heel of Obama.

That is how the Obamacare is defeated. Reject the lie. Repeal the ObamaTax.

IMHO. it sounds like good advice, and I can see his motivation. Helping to dump Obama will get his old boss Jimmy Carter away from being referred to as the worst rat president in recent U.S. history.

IMHO, maybe LBJ was worse than those two combined. LBJ went to Vietnam on a whim to advance his domestic agenda, figuring that he could bribe the commies to make peace! In case you don't know, LBJ had over 500,000 personnel in and around Vietnam when he left office. The total of U.S Armed Forces killed in that war was almost 60,000.

...he needs to make [Obama] answer for his attempt to sneak a stealth tax increase inside his 2700-page monstrosity.

Yeah, the tax must be somewhere inside it. After all, who could possibly think Obamacare would be a tax, just because Congress created it as Section 5000A of the Internal Revenue Code, and specified that it be calculated on the 1040 Income Tax form?

Sneaky bastards, who would have thought it possible for Roberts to turn something that benign into a tax, by doing something so outrageous as... as... well, I'll bet you anything the Chief Justice went and read it, and then had the nerve to repeat back what it said.

What kind of justice is that, I ask you?

If they can't get lame stream media coverage of Fast and Furious, what are they supposed to do? If they impeached Holder, the media will call it racist or just ignore it.
